I need a new bag. I need a bag which is big enough for an A4 pad and my A4 sized laptop. It needs to have a few pockets for train tickets, keys, a tampax and earphones. It needs to be hands-free. Not a big ask I thought to myself TWO YEARS AGO when I started looking for one.
I do not need a small glittery clutch bag. I will never need a small glittery clutch bag because they are completely fucking useless. No, I need to carry stuff, you know stuff which one needs to earn living with. I need something like a ……….. man bag, WHICH IS ALL I CAN FIND. Either that, or a shopper for fuck’s sake. Is that all you think women do, clutch and shop?
Neither do I want a black shiny nerd bag from the land that taste left behind. Nor do I want a plastic nightmare with gold clasps which looks like something my gran would have used. And I’d rather not have a wipe clean ‘retro’ bag with cup cakes all over it. I BLOODY HATE cupcakes. Cupcakes do not say ‘please take me seriously’.
Will you please, shops, start making bags for REAL WOMEN WITH JOBS AND STUFF. And while I’m on a roll, you could look at your shoe collections too. Some of us actually walk in ours.
Hmm. I feel your pain. Bag are tricky. Have you tried Etsy? Type in ‘messenger bag’ or laptop bag’. Some are pricey but it is nearly Xmas……..
Good luck and thank you for your books. x Amy
